Diy Bathroom Drain
DIY bathroom drain projects usually relate to toilets or to blocked drains that take water away from baths and basins. So the very thought of a DIY bathroom drain will probably make anybody who likes the idea of a DIY bathroom project instantly change their mind. But DIY bathroom drain projects can save you a lot of money because you won't have to call in the pros. Think hard!
If you're reading this, chances are you are either into DIY, or otherwise you might be contemplating doing something yourself for the very first time!
Drains are not a bad place to start. They might smell, but they generally aren't difficult to clear. The thing is that it's usually our fault that bathroom drains get blocked in the first place. Apart from toilets, the drains that lead from basins and baths get blocked because of a build-up of hair, grease and other oily, mucky things that we use and then flush down the drain. Think about it, if you keep your bathroom clean, your drains will probably never get blocked.
Problems of DIY Bathroom Drain Projects
The problem is that drains do block (even when most of us keep them as clean as we can) and if this happens, then you are going to have to take instant action. So what do you do?
Happily, most blocked drains can be cleared using some types of a drain rod. If you don't have your own, you can hire something that will do the job. If you can't clear the blockage by pumping the rod, then you might need to try physically shifting the rod to move the load. If that doesn't work, then duck DIY and call in professional help.
When a toilet drain gets blocked, you're faced with a different scenario, simply because of what is blocking the drain. Now we're talking really yucky! But this doesn't mean you can't clear the blocked drain yourself. You may well be able to. The secret is to accept the point when you can't. And if you can't do-it-yourself, call in the pros (or hold your breath) - and then accept that this definitely is not a DIY bathroom drain.
